This photo is a sign of our collective strength and faith. Thank you for sharing. May I share my poem with you? I'll never forget that day. Keep the faith -

“Firefighters – 9-11”

Our Towers fell on a sunny day -
life of loved ones passed away.

As I watched the towers fall,
saw the planes crash in the walls,
my tears mixed with those who shed,
their blood – in rubble … left in Towers’stead.

Oh, men of fire,
heart's aflame,
courageous yet, gentle -
with tears all the same.

I saw you there rushing in,
through smoke and fire
… buildings caving in.
Crying as you stopped to pray,
then, kept digging – day after day.

You have not failed -
though none were found,
still left living - there underground.
A nation united with you on that day,
And, with new vigor the people come to say…

“…we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government, of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.” (A. Lincoln)
